Wedding Photography for Photography LoversThe story of your wedding, captured with creativity, soul and without intrusion
Hello, I’m Paul.
If you’re someone who already knows that your wedding photographs are going to be incredibly valuable to you, if you want those photographs to be captured unobtrusively so you can just enjoy your day, and if you want the end product to convey the emotion and story of your wedding honestly, authentically and with creativity, please take a minute to read on.

Maybe you’ve already viewed one uninspiring portfolio of shallow snapshots too many. Perhaps you think the word “passionate” has become somewhat overused and meaningless, and you’re wondering what “documentary wedding photography” even means given the wildly different interpretations many photographers seem to have.
